habl suri (umbilical cord) is translated in arabic as the secret string
the bedouinwomen believe the soul is seated inside of habl suri.
they suggest me to buy a flock to get the umbilical cords on my own responsibility.

one woman named aida is into umbilicalcord trading. all the others dont want to do it.

team: barbara husar, luc gross, ulrike hauser

exchanging them with a golden ring and tarpaulins.

acquirement of my flock

naefte is living on her own deep inside of the mountains.
because of her high age and being without family she will sell me 5 goats.

amma nassra is very happy about the flock accession
she will collect the umbilical cords and sundry them for me, till i come back.

february - march 08

3rd journey to sinai



team: barbara husar, milena gartler (dolmetch), marlies moederndorfer (visuelle anthrophologie)

we are joining amma nassra with my little flock on her way through the wadis. 3 little babygoats are born into my flock. umbilicalcords are not the subject. when i was asking her for them, the blitheful bedouinwoman explained, that she did not really understand our agreement from last year.it took us a lot of sensitivity to come back to data exchange subject. from now on she will collect the cords and sundry them for me, even she is not feeling comfortable with it. she will not tell anybody about it.
even aida did not expect me to come back and ask again for habl suri. unfortunately she was not able to exchange any,even she is having 10 very young goats with her. but she promised, that she will keep the next ones. like she did it in the year before, because she knows now, that i am coming back for sure. and i pay 100 pounds per cord (around 13 euros)
from amira, a bedouinwomen from mzina tribe i got 2 umbilical cords.

lots of cultural datas we collected on this habl suri track. the cords are opening a wide communication field with the guardians of old nomadic tradition.

over 50 hours on mini-dv tapes,
15 hours sound, predominantly traditional music and 6500 photos we brought back to vienna.

silvercord *

for the exhibition zeugaortaplacentatas in gallery konzett i designed the textileobject SILVERCORD


just like the umbilical cord leads to life, the lifelong existing energetic silvercord, also called silvery umbilical cord, as a connection between material and spiritual body, separates in the moment of death and stays in the fine-material realm till the possibility of incarnation raises.

Reisend, Ziegenherden hütend, webt BARBARA ANNA HUSAR seit Jahren ein Netz aus organischen Verknüpfungen, zwischen Kulturen, Zeiten, Tier und Mensch, Herde und Individuum, versieht diese mit bio-logisch poetischen Bezeichnungen, spielt in multimedialer Weise mit Urarten von Zusammenhang - von grellfarbigen Dinausauriern, fein gebogenen Fritteusen, zu bestempelten Zeichnungen und Reisefotos, in Experimentalfilmen oder Büchern gebündelt. Ein Material-Gedanke durchzieht dabei das Werk: die Nabelschnur. Der Inbegriff eines CORPO PIU GRANDE wird über fliessende Eigenschaften erfasst und mündet noch dieses Jahr in eine Hängematte aus Nabelschnüren. Evolutive Codes changieren zwischen Archaik und aktuellen Möglichkeitsräumen. Im Rahmen von PARALLEL zeigt BARBARA ANNA HUSAR Auszüge ihrer multimedialen Organismen mit Schwerpunkt Graphik.

For nine months this golden egg was in an earth gallery atop Vienna between two rubber dinghy's. Inside the golden egg, the CRADLE OF ESTUARY was embedded. CRADLE OF ESTUARY is a hammock made with the umbilical cords of goats from the archaic Sinai desert by the shepherdess and artist Barbra Anna Husar. She collected the life leading strings for 7 years and was connecting the cords in 2014 in the Candyfactory Vienna. Between 10.01.2015 and 08.10.2015 the hammock was in the cave. From there it was transported to the top of a tower in Vienna West, where a bolt of lightening made of umbilical cords is now in the making.
